  The 2018 International Bluegrass Music Award Ceremony was held last week in Raleigh, North Carolina at The Duke Energy Center for Performing Arts. The event was hosted by one of WNCW's favorite bands, HOT RIZE. Many of the IBMA musicians are long time friends of our grassroots, listener-powered radio station and we want to take time and congratulate the winners - Job well done!

 

On our Bluegrass voyage this weekend, we celebrate the birthdays of Larry Sparks, Shawn Lane, the late Charles Sawtelle of Hot Rize, Steve Gulley and others. We'll also feature the new Earls of Leicester Live CD from the Country Music Hall Of Fame! Join Hosts Joe Greene and Todd Baldwin every Saturday from 11am 'til 7pm for Goin' Across The Mountain, on your listener-supported, grassroots radio station WNCW.

Time goes on, life moves forward, roots grow, leaves sprout and branches grow up and out reaching for new heights... new places.  That's what The Tall Grass is all about... roots music that grows and morphs into many different kinds of sound and song. This week Joe Greene brings us music from Claire Lynch, Slocan Ramblers, Love Canon, David Benedict and lots more. Take a stroll in The Tall Grass, every Sunday at 6pm, on WNCW 88.7 and wncw.org.
